Rapper Nelly has kept tight-lipped about his romance with singer Ashanti for years, but the chart-topping rapper has finally opened up slightly. “That’s the thing between me and her, we just like having fun,” he told People.com at Las Vegas’ Lavo club. When asked whether their bond is serious, he said, “I think it’s always serious-when you can hang with a person continuously…and (still) have fun.” Earlier this summer, Ashanti would only call Nelly a “good friend,” according to People.com.
